Mail Boxes Etc. offers a wide range of services to both businesses and individual customers. These include mailing & shipping, printing, packing, and much more. Due to the brand’s success, its network has grown large, and is still expanding – there’s never been a better time to take the franchise opportunities the company is offering.
Introducing the Company’s Services
Customers can bring their goods to one of the brand’s establishments to get them packed and shipped. They can request that their items be enclosed within custom-made boxes or crates, and they’re even able to choose which type of wrapping and tape is used. After this has been done, each client is able to choose between Mail Boxes Etc.’s reliable courier partners, who can perform express deliveries on request.
In addition to this, the company’s trained professionals can expertly design, print, and copy business cards, leaflets and flyers, letterheads, and so on. The brand can also offer a mailbox and virtual office service. This enables customers or businesses to have a professional address separate from their real office or home.
Learn What It Means to Be a Mail Boxes Etc. Franchise Partner
You’ll manage your own brick-and-mortar outlet offering all the services the company has become known for. Your days will be spent both in and out of your store as you look to grow your enterprise.
You’ll have help at every stage of the set-up process. You won’t be asked to find a suitable area for your establishment by yourself. The brand’s franchise team will step in and look through potential locations with you. Once they’ve found you somewhere that’ll have a steady supply of business opportunities for you to capitalise upon, they’ll assist you during the lease negotiations.
While you’re running your courier services franchise, the company will make sure your store gets as much exposure as possible. For instance, if a customer is searching for a Mail Boxes Etc. outlet in your area, they’ll be able to find you through the brand’s main website. They’ll then be able to contact you, and request quotes online. This’ll prove invaluable as you build your customer base.
There’s No Ideal Candidate
This franchise opportunity is best suited to driven and determined entrepreneurs. You won’t need specific experience.
